These HyperFlight CNC cut ply servo frames make fitting a MKS-DS6100, and MKS-HV6100 servos to a molded wing very easy. No thickness is added to the installation, and the servo is mounted securely, yet can be removed easily if required.

Two servo frames supplied in the pack.

How To Mount Wing Servos Using Ply Frames

1. Glue a strip of 3mm (or 1/8”) balsa to the leading edge of the mount (width dependant on the distance the mount is likely to be behind the main spar).
2. Place the mount with the servo in-situ in the wing and abut it against the rear of the main spar.
3. Slide the mount sideways until it is in the correct position laterally and determine how much the width of the 3mm balsa needs to be adjusted for the mount to be in the correct position fore and aft.
4. Trim balsa to size. Reposition servo mount in wing and when happy with position draw a pencil line around the outside of the mount.
5. Remove servo from mount and epoxy mount into wing taking care not to get any epoxy in the inside of the mount which will prevent servo sitting properly in the mount.
6. Set up and adjust servo control rods as required. When satisfied glue servo in position using silicon / bath sealer and allow to set overnight.

To remove servo gently lever out with a suitable small screwdriver, allowing time for the sealer to break its bond between the servo and the wing.

Do not epoxy the mount in place with the servo in-situ for two reasons. A) It gets in the way when trying to place the mount. B) It introduces side loads which have a tendency to move the mount out of position whilst the epoxy is setting.

To minimise control surface slop the servo must be mounted as rigidly as possible. In molded wings this is greatly assisted by bonding the servo to the bottom wing surface, using a suitably shaped wooden block. Similarly attaching false ribs to the inner and outer edges of the servo bay will mechanically connect the upper and lower wing skins, increasing rigidity.

BAD frame for BMS-105HV

I just can not imagine I am reviewing the same object as other people. I bought 12 servos BMS-105HV and 10 servo frames. In my case the the fit is far from perfect and the match needed significant adjustment. But there ware one problem which could not be fixed by adjustment. It would be easier if I was able to show a photo instead of my explanation but ... The problem is that the hole for servo lead is on the opposite position. I do not know if MKS 6100 and BMS 105 are exactly equal, but if I could believe on the pictures here it seems servo leads are positioned at opposite sites. You can not turn out the frame because the servo arm does not fit. I solved the problem by eliminating the rubber protection of servo lead. Three stars because the frames are cheap an after some work they can be used. Unhappy.

nicely cut

Bought them not for the mks-6100, but for the blue bird cn1005hv. They pertectly fit the mks and after some small adjustments are more then ok for the blue bird.

Great value for money.

Servo Frames

These frames are a good fit on the servos so they afford good location and are simple to glue in place. They have saved me time which is worth the small cost.
